's stay on the subject of guns and what to do about them. congressman jim moran says there is a disconnect between the national rifle association's leadership and the nra members. the democrat from virginia is pushing a package of gun reforms he says most nra members support. and representative moran joins me now live from washington. good to have you with us. >> good to be with you, thank you. >> congressman, when many politicians think about the nra, they think about this legion of people who stand shoulder to shoulder with wayne lapierre and the leadership and what he says they believe. you believe, though, that the nra leadership is out of touch with the membership. why? >> well, this bill that we're introducing on the first session of the next congress has five measures where two-thirds of nra membership support them. in fact, in some cases one of them is supported by 79% of the nra members. so i do think there is a disconnect between the nra members and the gun manufacturers who basically pay the salaries of the nra leadership. but what this would do is to require background checks,

and close facilities. reporter: jim moran said his district, right outside of washington, home to many who work in the defense industry, could be harvested in the country. he is warning constituents that they can expect an immediate 8 billion-dollar cut in defense money if we go over the fiscal cliff. that, he says, will likely lead to job losses. jon? jon: that is very scary stuff. molly henneberg, thank you. harris: the nation is mourning the loss of norman schwarzkopf. he was 78 years old. the man known as storming norman drove out saddam hussein's forces in kuwait in 1991. operation desert storm entered one of our history books. you know, i have read that you say that the general earned every bit of his impeccable reputation as a leader. why is that? >> well, if you look back at where we were when he played a critical role in leading the first gulf war, we had come off of the 70s, which were the carter years, morale is really bad. reagan rebuilt the military during the 80s. then george h. w. bush took over as well. the team that was rebuilt, that new army and air force, the new navy th
jim ramstead and patrick kennedy talking about being in recovery, and the fact that good people get this disease. it's a bad disease. but good people get it and successful people get it and we can recover. >> as she mentioned, we talked about it in the past, it's been a disease that men have battled. what is it you think people will be able take away from the documentary to open their eyes to the problem at hand? >> well, i think two-fold. one, this stigma, it is interesting that for mothers in particular, there's this idea in our society that we should be perfect and on all the time. i think there is a real harsh judgment against women that might pick up a drink to cope and before they know it, this disease really grabs them. i think that's one thing. and i also think understanding the psychological pressures that women are under nowadays is very, very key. seeing that in our sisters and our mothers and our friends and our children, being able to understand more and deal with it with compassion and sympathy instead of judgment. >> the movie will be premiering here in the d.c. area.
been going on for years in iowa, my friend, former colleague, jim leech and i had written about that. it's happening in california, in arizona, even a little bit in florida. that is part of the problem. nationally they got more than a million more votes than republicans who ran for the house of representatives. yet they come into this with a 5-vote margin and there are some areas where in north carolina there were more votes for democrats than republicans but there are only 20 -- 27% of the representatives are democrats. it confuses the notion of mandate. the president won decisively, the president picked up ground and we had a million more votes nationwide for the house of representatives. that doesn't sound like much of a national mandate to continue the policies of the republicans over the last decade or so. host: let's go to the republican line, david from ohio. i would love to be able to buy my children ferraris or the president kept on saying he wanted a balanced attack. to this problem. which i agree that you had to increase the revenues, but you also got to address the spendi
gone up. guest: i guess that's one way to look at it, sure. host: let's go to floral city, florida. jim on the republicans line. caller: good morning. i don't so much have a question but a comment. i feel that most of the conversation in washington is about money and it's more, more, more, more. they're going to waste every dime they get. so the problem i consider is that they have too much money. not that they have too little. they don't need more. if we were to update our computer system we could probably do 60% to 70% of our governmental business on a computer and let the people run it instead of our bureaucrats. it just makes no sense. i've only heard just a very few words regarding the fact that they spend too much money. guest: we do. we spend too much money. and unfortunately you're absolutely right. we don't hear that enough and for that reason that was the reason we got the compromise last night. enough people are willing to look the other way on the spending. again, i understand the folks who voted for it. both democrats and republicans alike. they don't want to go over the cl
-on with this new jim crow of mass incarceration. >> ben, do you have specifics here? you're very strong on this point. is there something specifically that you think about that you feel the president needs to do in that regard? >> one thing we would like to see and we've requested from the u.s. department of justice is that they actually offer an alternative to a report that president george bush won, if you will, george h.w. bush, has ag ashcroft issued late in the first term which was called the case for more incarceration. that ushered in this supersized period of mass incarceration in this country. it's time to have a report called the case for less inkars rags. we've seen republican governors in georgia and texas sign off on bills to downsize the size of their justice system switches from failed tough on crime policies like incarceration for addicts to proven smart on crime policies like treatment for addicts. >> okay. >> so it's time for this president and his doj to take the lead on that issue and get us back towards sanity in the justice system that works. >> a final point. we'r

them and companies of tomorrow will not get the funds they need to jim walton of walmart four million from dividends. they are top guys pulling the money out. when you look at investment dollars. we have seen so much fluxation in the stock market. stuart varney said it was an effort to cash out some of the money because they don't know what is happening next year. it proves the basic point. you raise taxes you are not raising revenues. most people will respond to thes . they are not sure and look at walmart. it is the walton family that is the richest family in the united states. they initially planned dividend pay out for january 2nd . uncertainty about the fiscal cliff. they are moving up it is yet another example of how we get around this. i would point out when companies are not paying out the dividends, it means we get waste we don't like. instead they spend on offices and private jets and otherwise they might have distributed those funds much >> yes. john tamny, have a great new years. >> and coming up on the show . how late is too late to get your kids eating right? >> and othe
jim bunning, objected to the extension of unemployment benefits. we wanted to extend them for literally millions of americans and he stood on his desk on the republican side and said i object. and then sat down. that was tend of the story. that was really the end of the debate. and so i went to the floor and i said i just want to give society notice to the senator from kentucky i'm going to renew that request every half so he'd better return to the floor because he has to object every time. and this was late at night. and we mobilized a number of people in the cloakroom and came to the floor and kept it going and finally he got up and complained he was missing the university of kentucky basketball game on television because of this. and i thought several million people are missing unemployment benefits because of this, too. so that is in the nature of what you're trying to achieve. if there is something important enough to stop the course of the senate activity, to stop the business of the senate, then you should be prepared to be on the floor and argue your case. and brin
